This presentation will show you how to take a dose of your prescribed medicine from the ELLIPTA inhaler. For full information on how to use your ELLIPTA inhaler, and other important facts about your medicine, please see the complete Prescribing Information for your prescribed ELLIPTA product.
To avoid wasting doses, do not open and close the cover without inhaling the medicine.
Lost doses are held in the inhaler and it is not possible to accidentally take a double dose or an extra dose in 1 inhalation.

Breathe out slowly and gently.
You may not taste or feel the medicine, even when you are using the inhaler correctly.
